Busto, 43, allegedly entered a dressing area occupied by people working at the fashion show and repeatedly screamed his wishes to marry Emma Watson, disrupting several individuals present. The police report states that Busto unlawfully entered the building “with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance, or alarm.” It remains unclear whether Watson was present at the event space during the incident.
The arrest occurred on Friday, with Busto being arraigned on Saturday where he pleaded not guilty. He has been granted supervised release and is due back in court on October 2nd in connection with this incident. The event was attended by several stars including Jennifer Lopez, Julianne Moore, and James Marsden, although it is not confirmed if Watson was there.
This is not Busto’s first encounter with the law; he was arrested on August 24th for searching for Drew Barrymore’s residence in Long Island, just days after he disrupted an onstage panel hosted by Barrymore in Manhattan. During that incident, he approached the stage shouting his name and insisting on meeting Barrymore, leading to a charge of fourth-degree stalking, a class B misdemeanor.
